AFI Movies of the Year:

- American Hustle
- Captain Phillips
- Fruitvale Station

Her took the National Board of Review honors while American Hustle captured the New York Critics’ hearts. The award season has officially begun, even though many of the films are yet to appear in theaters.
Her, The Wolf of Wall Street, Saving Mr. Banks and American Hustle will still have to be viewed by audiences, and chances are all this top 10 list attention will do nothing but help these films at the box office.
"[The] AFI Awards is a moment for the most accomplished storytellers of 2013 to pause and be appreciated -- not as competitors, but as a community," Bob Gazzale, the AFI's president and CEO, said in a statement. "Acknowledging their collective contributions to America's rich cultural legacy is both AFI's national mandate -- and honor."
